“Coronavirus” is an umbrella term for many types of viruses that have been known to cause respiratory diseases in both people and animals. The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19; previously 2019-nCoV) is a new strain that has been recently discovered and publicized worldwide. PuroClean of Clackamas uses the PuroClean RapidDefense™ system to provide deep mitigation cleaning in areas compromised by a Coronavirus or Influenza outbreak. Using this process, the team at PuroClean of Clackamas will carefully contain the area and will minimize the risk of pathogens spreading using The Environmental Protection Agency-registered (EPA) products. If there are any lingering odors, our trained technicians will deodorize the area and return your Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro, OR-WA area property back to its pre-loss condition with empathy and care.
An extremely effective way to battle the spread of the virus is by the deep mitigation cleaning of all touch-point surfaces, and also using EPA-registered disinfectants. This particular kind of cleaning can be done in commercial properties, institutions and residential homes alike. Right now, the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, causing government leaders and healthcare experts to urge the public to take every available precaution for personal protection. The coronavirus cleaning services PuroClean performs assists in reducing contamination risk related to the COVID-19 outbreak. Get in touch with your local PuroClean office for additional information regarding how we can assist you in the cleaning of your property.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. This includes between people who are close to one another (within about 6 feet) and through respiratory droplets becoming airborne when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The droplets then can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be breathed into the lungs.
According to the CDC, it could likely be possible that a person can contract COVID-19 by coming into contact with a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.
We first will come in and provide a full assessment of your office or home. We determine the level of containment required and discuss the plan of action with you.
Initially, our technicians arrive at the premises and do a quick walkthrough to ensure that the area is ready for cleaning services. Then, they plan the flow of the work to do the cleaning as efficiently as possible.
It is of high importance to conduct biohazard removal while also paying strict attention to safety, industry and OSHA standards and guidelines. Our skilled technicians wear special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to keep themselves safe. PuroClean will also contain the area, taking the appropriate steps to keep you and your loved ones or employees safe as well.
PPE is required to be worn by our cleanup technicians. The equipment worn consists of Nitrile gloves, shoe covers, Biohazard protective coveralls, as well as a full-face respirator. The respirator provides protection from splashing that could reach the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose and mouth
Specific use towelettes are used that also conform to OSHA’s bloodborne pathogen standard against diseases like the coronavirus and numerous more diseases, bacteria, mold, mildew, tuberculosis, and viruses. These and more cleaning supplies put to use by our industry certified technicians are all hospital grade and EPA-registered disinfectants.
The most common cleaning materials used by PuroClean professionals include:
Puroclean implements three methods when using these disinfectants. Depending on the circumstances, our workers apply hospital grade, EPA-registered disinfectants in one of these three ways:
Synthetic carpets, rugs, curtains, and upholstery – Our technicians will either clean these items manually or, for machine cleaning, they will apply approved disinfectants for textiles and carpets and then extract where needed.
Natural fabrics, rugs, curtains, and upholstery must be cleaned in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Disinfecting linens, clothing and personal fabrics: The instructions on each label should be followed when laundering the contaminated items. Note: Remember to disinfect washing machines after washing contaminated clothing.
Leather tanned materials: PuroClean can clean these materials by utilizing disinfectant towelettes for wiping the surfaces with a lightly dampened cloth.
Suede and Nu-buck leather garments – These are to be cleaned according to the instructions of the manufacturer.
Concrete, cinder block, wood, plywood, and oriented strand board (OSB) – Cleaned by placing the disinfectant solution directly onto the surface.
HVAC system – HVAC internal components and surfaces of ductwork should be cleaned in accordance with industry guidelines by a licensed HVAC contractor or NADCA certified duct cleaner. External ductwork surfaces, grills, grates, and registers should be cleaned with a disinfectant solution.
Our technicians shall make the decision whether further cleaning and deodorization will be carried out. However, typically once the infected locations are cleaned and start to dry, the odors will go away.
We understand that a biohazard event can be stressful and sensitive and must be handled with empathy, care and discretion. PuroClean restoration professionals are fully licensed and certified to follow all applicable laws and standards to remediate incidents safely.
RESPECTFUL: Our certified biohazard cleaning technicians treat every affected area and item respectfully and professionally, as if it were our own.
HIGHEST STANDARDS: PuroClean uses products that are approved to provide protection, prevent contamination and reduce the risk of spreading dangerous pathogens.
ADVANCED CLEANING SYSTEM: Our RapidDefense system disinfects and even helps prevent virus and other pathogen-based contamination in nearby areas. This is an innovative procedure we use in order to sanitize public areas as effectively as possible.
Before PuroClean professionals vacate a premises that had been contaminated by the coronavirus, they will completely clean all tools, PPE, and cleaning items that were used while performing coronavirus cleanup, using a hospital-grade, EPA-registered disinfectant.
Per the CDC, Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces are the recommended actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, like coronavirus. Since any surface can be re-contaminated after cleaning, and because the coronavirus is also spread person-to-person, PuroClean’s services are not guaranteed to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
